Gor Mahia returnee Meddie Kagere was on target in his very first game back at the club after a six month hiatus. This bodes well for the team and his partnership with compatriot Jacque Tuyisenge.

Kagere however admitted that he was under intense pressure and was unsure of how he would perform.

“I was under pressure and I felt very uneasy even as I was walking into the field. I asked God to give the team a win, even if I wouldn’t score because I knew how much the club’s fans love to win.

“Scoring after just 13 minutes was therefore a great relief for me because it took a lot of pressure away from me. I began to feel more at ease with the ball and I even dreamed of scoring another goal,” he said to kpl.co.ke.

Aside from the fact that he left in December, Kagere was perhaps feeling the pressure of having to justify his place in the team instead of the Brazilian Lima Da Silva who is preferred by the coach.

Kagere blamed the loss of points to Homeboyz on complacency by the team

“The moment we went ahead, I felt comfortable and I think the same thing happened to the rest of the team. We relaxed especially in the second half and allowed Homeboyz back into the match,” he said. he continued.

Gor Mahia are now five points adrift of Tusker and Kagere who scored 13 goals in the 2015 season is one of the players who will be counted on to close that gap. The campaign to close the gap starts with the match against Ushuru this Sunday at Nyayo stadium.

    All best “Luanda Magere”. So you too noted the complacency and won’t sugar coat it, that’s honesty and sets a good ground for self and team improvement. Thank-you Sir and GOD BLESS KO’GALO.

    So we have gone 8 straight games on a winning streak and we can afford to sit on our laurels. Even when Loga and Nutall did 20 + games without loosing there were some draws in between. At Kogallo we don’t like loosing so for as long as we are not loosing, everything should be fine, even a draw against minnows.

    Secondly, I also noticed the game vs KK was rather very slow…Luanda Magere was it complacency or was it the 2pm Kisumu heat or perhaps a bit of both ? If it is complacency then am really worried as Tusker is already 5 points clear and we have some 20+ games before the season winds up.

    Lastly, what became of CECAFA Kagame Cup ? Anybody with news…

    We should try to maximise on these minnows so that when Tusker will get a penalty against Kogallo, it will not affect us. Surely you have all seen that Tusker must get a useless call in every match.

    Nini mbaya kwani watu wangu mlihama, where are you. No updates no comments what’s going on here

    • Dan Original says:

      @ja Thur GI ji , Because we didn’t beat KK HMBz even admin had moved on. Not sure if they are responding to the current environment of defections.

      Anyway how I wish Gor had a site where we get ‘officially’ informed on what s going on. Currently we have to rely on Ngala to give us an update when he has the ‘time’.

      With the money we now have we can contract a PR company/person to disseminate these info in a professional way e.g. we could get official info about Walu Walu’s accident, the upcoming trip of Aucho to Scotland, Wafula’s below par performance, Wellington , Benard and Luke’s position etc etc
